Oddly enough, the British-Irish boy band recently spoke of Ed’s connection to the track. Harry Styles tells MTV, ”["Little Things"] actually wasn’t one of [them] we were supposed to be recording. We went in to record a different one of his and he said ‘I’ve written something else if you want to hear it’… he wrote it and then played it to us in the session when we were supposed to record something else and we said ‘All right, we want to record that now.’”
And the rest is history. What do you think of Ed’s version? Do you think he and 1D should collab? Tell us below or join the conversation on our Ed Sheeran message board!
